The roundtable mission is to promote sustainability and resilience of resources critical to ecosystems and communities that depend upon them.
Increasing the level of ecosystem and community sustainability and resilience requires an understanding of the science underlying ecosystem functioning and addressing challenges in policies, programs, and practices. This requires changing our behaviors as individuals, communities, businesses, organizations, states, and nations. Recognizing challenges at local and regional levels can help us opportunities to find better solutions at larger scales and can create pathways for meaningful action. Collaborative research and sharing common solutions can optimize resources and accelerate positive change.
The roundtable works to achieve this through engaging knowledgeable people and partners from the business, government, academia, and nonprofit sectors to improve the understanding,
management, utilization, conservation, preservation, and restoration of ecosystems and the services they provide to communities.
The roundtable envisions a future in which individuals, communities, and nations keep resources and ecosystems sustainable and resilient for the benefit of people and nature.
